Gulf Middle School AVID Program

County: Lee
Categories Youth
Details: AVID is a college readiness program that prepares students for success in rigorous coursework in high school, college and beyond. AVID students are motivated to do well in school and are carefully selected to participate in the program. The curriculum has a strong focus on writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading.
Job Description: The AVID program requires college tutors to come into the regularly scheduled AVID classes at least once per week to help facilitate small group tutorial sessions. AVID tutors work with groups of 7-8 students who take turns presenting their points of confusion from their academic classes. Using the inquiry method, students work together and share resources to find solutions to their academic problems. The tutor acts as supervisor and facilitator to the group and offers insight when needed.
